Strategies, objectives and measures on the environment, safety, health, quality and security are centrally controlled by the ESHQ function and developed in close cooperation with the operational areas and specialist functions.

  • We as ESHQ at Evonik, we define our environmental goals. By 2025, we will reduce our CO2 emissions - based on 2008 - by half.
  • With our integrated management system, we continuously check the suitability and functionality of our processes with the aim of continuous improvement. Strengths and potentials with regard to the environment, safety, health, quality and energy are thus identified for our company.
  • Through worldwide compliance audits, we assess whether internal guidelines and group standards as well as legal or regulatory regulations and their organizational obligations are complied with in the affected processes.
  • Our annual management review informs the Executive Board about the strengths and weaknesses of our operating units.

As the responsible department, we regularly consider the impact of our production activities in terms of the environment. With the help of a centrally provided tool, we collect environmental data worldwide and determine key figures. With the help of these key figures, we evaluate our environmental performance and derive measures.

We analyze and evaluate developments and impacts of regulatory requirements in cooperation with national and international associations.

We face both today's issues and the challenges of a fast-changing society in order to continue to position Evonik well in its competitive environment.
